Backing up text messages on Moto X Pure

2018-04-19, 21:03 PM

My Moto X Pure is at the end of it's useful life. 

In comes the Moto Z2 Force in its happy red box just awaiting activation.

 

I have backed up the phone (music, photos, etc) to my Google account, but no where can I find out if that backup will include my SMS/MMS text messages.  I want those backed up and restored to the new phone...anyone know if this is possible?  I'm using the default "messages" app for texts (not Messenger or other third party app).

 

Information hugely appreciated!

it is possible, but you will need a third party app to do it. I typically use SMS backup& restore, but there are many others out there.
